Not A Fan Of The New Kids Reunion

| Filed under: Music Minute

markymark.jpg

MTV recently asked Mark Wahlberg if Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch would be reuniting any time soon.

You know, since his bro, Donnie , reunited with his band the New Kids On the Block and all that.

Not a fucking chance,” responded the younger Wahlberg.

He went on to say, “They asked me if I would partake and I had to decline. Part of me would love to run around and act like a freaking a–hole again but I can’t do that. I’ve got two kids. I saw something on VH1 or something about me in the 90s and I thought, oh my God, how am I going to explain this to my kids? I have a few years to think about how to finesse it but I do think about it on a daily basis.”

We just heard the sound of many 30-something hearts breaking across the land.

Oh, and speaking of the New Kids reunion, Marky Mark says, "Whatever floats your boat. If the Rolling Stones can be wheeled out on wheelchairs then why can’t the New Kids go out there?"

Why you gotta be so cold to your own bro????

    he has always been very opposed to the idea and never even liked to be made fun of when this topic came up. I would feel ashamed too if I was acting like that. Just look at Vanilla Ice, he is a mess as well. Vanilla hates that phase in his life as well. I wonder if we'll see eminem in about 10 years acting all gangsta, or will he be like Vanilla Ice and Marky Mark? Only time will tell.

    damn marky why u gotta be so condescending about it like it didn't pay ur bills and you are above everyone. i saw that show when vh1 voted marky mark the #1 hottie of the 90s and clearly vh1 was smoking crack on that decision.

    Ungrateful bastard! If not for Donnie he never would've had a record deal and made it into movies. Donnie started off acting and his doors opened. Little bitch, have some respect!

    I don't mind him not reuniting with the Funky Bunch. As long as I get to see him nekked…in person preferrably. :P I only need four minutes to change his world! Bwahahaha. ;)

    Seems big bro Donnie still has more money than Marky Mark. Or maybe Donnie got better looking women back in the day? I don't know what others saw, but I remember Mark being a joke even in his heyday.

    I don't blame him. You just grow as a person. That was 20 years ago. He's come a long way since then, had a movie career, acting, etc. Change is normal.

    i just dont understand why people keep asking him about that phase.. he obviously moved on, he's an actor now and i like the fact that he's not trying to revive his old days.. he's a grown man and like him, i do find it somewhat ridiculous that at almost 40 years of age these guys are trying to make a "comeback"..

    Mark Wahlberg is a fantastic actor! Why would he go back to the Funky Bunch. His brother is also a talented actor, but has not had as much success. Not a big deal. Also Marky produces 'Entourage', which is a great show…so he's a little busy now.

  37. XFVOC says – reply to this


    37

    Re: Carme – Yes, the stones ARE fit. The Funky Bunch were no Rolling Stones, for sure. If they were, he'd still be stage strutting.

  38. gina says – reply to this


    38

    That's all fine and dandy if he doesn't want to reunite with the Funky Bunch. But would he reconsider reuniting with Calvin Klein's white boxershirts and displaying that image on 60 foot bulletin…Huh?…..Please?

    42

    I can't, for the life of me, figure out why this douche is considered an A-class actor. He is horrible. He was a horrible rapper and now he is a horrible "actor". He plays the same character in every one of his films.

  43. kate says – reply to this


    43

    His brother Donnie??? Lol i guess someone needs to read TMZ or People to get better informed!!!
    Anyways his group was not that huge as NKOTB they where a one hit single band and he has way more shamefull things that he will have to explain to his kids like being arrested, a third nipple and those hot and steamy CK posters… gosh is so easy to open up and screw it!

    I love Mark but I don't like when people say rude things about their families there is no need for that! Mark you are down one point in my book today :(

  45. Laure says – reply to this


    45

    Mark is such a douche! You can still tell hes an arrogant bastard! And besides the Rolling Stones are my favorite band so he can go to hell, obviously no one gives a shit about him anymore, just like he doesnt give a shit about his fans! He's not a real man, it's time fr him to GROW UP!!

    Re: kate
    What do you mean? Donnie is Mark's brother so what are you talking about?



  47. 47

    he's soooooooooo right!
    don't get me wrong, i LOVE nkotb and donnie happens to be my favourite one…
    HOWEVER!
    it's been forever since they've performed and stuff… donnie has an acting career and i wonder how reuniting with new kids will affect that…
    mark wahlberg made the right decision NOT to get back with Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch….
    the other new kids have nothing to lose…
    donnie, on the other hand, has an acting career to consider…
    i'm not sure he did that before agreeing to go back out on tour….

    Re: Carolactually it was Mark who was hired first into new kids on the block, together with his brother, Donnie. But Mark didn't want to pursue some boyband crap, he saw the future. And it obviously helped

    Re: eb
    Actually the real reason is because Mark was in jail when they hit it big

  54. EXFVO says – reply to this


    54

    Mark is associating performing musically with 'running around and acting like a freaking A-hole again.' Sounds like a confession. Uhm, some performers never did that, and particularly when they're older and have more sense. They enjoy performing, and treat their fans with respect and behave with integrity. If he's a better man now, he'd be a better man back performing. He's not who he once was, but if he thinks it would be temptation, I get his decision. He must be 'over' music. I don't blame him one bit for not wanting to leave his kids behind to go back on the road. I really like his acting. A lot.

  55. SinCi says – reply to this


    55

    Sounds to me like "Marky Mark" is ashamed of how he got his start. If he hadn't started out as Marky Mark and the funky bunch then nobody would know who the hell he was or care for that matter. He basically said that his own brother was going on stage acting like as a$$hole. Low class Marky Mark!!

  56. PETA says – reply to this


    56

    Why does he have to take everything so seriously? Have some sense of humor, Marky Mark!
    .
    If he has a little bit sense of humor, people will laugh with him not laugh at him. He is way too sensitive, that just makes us laugh at him.
    .
    What's the big deal? Really! Everybody has to start at something to get better jobs in show biz. So many successful entertainers did cheesy commercials and stupid projects before they made it.

    Marky Mark should not compare New KIds to the Rolling Stones, it is just ignorant and disrespectful. What a jerk. The Rolling Stones actually produce great, original music, and they still sound great; they are not using wheel chairs, they are barely in their 60's.

    I was curious about the cost of going to see nkotb did u know they are charging up to 675 dollars for tickets the cheapest being 90. WOW! Are we even that popular anymore to charge that much. I love them but I'm not paying that to see them. Their tickets were cheaper back in the day and popular preformers like Justin Timberlake charge up to 300 for their tickets and cheapest being 65. Give me a break NKOTB!

    mark was an original member of new kids when he was 13; he was born in 1971. he left, leaving the 5th spot open for joey mcintyre. mark was in jailed in 1988. check it.

    I don't think he is being rude to his brother at all–he is just saying why shouldn't his brother do his own thing if he wants to but it's not for Mark.

    oh yeah, the family man who beat to death (or was it just severely) a vietnamese guy. that's why mr family went to jail. check out that bio. softspoken on screen, killer on the streets. people don't change, just their bank accounts.

    77

    i was wrong–he only took the middle-aged vietnamese man's eye while he was robbing a liquor store. wonder if he has given that man any money, since he only took his eye. nice to see nice guys finishing first.

    At least IF the Stones were in wheelchairs, people would still pay to see their awesomeness, but if you were to put Snarky Mark and the Pukey Bunch in a time machine way back to when ole Markypoo was a hottie in his little underroos, and put them on a stage, NO ONE would show up. Well I might try to sneak a picture or two of Barfy Marf in his lil jockeys. But I wouldn't pay.

    Good for him. Marky boy has decided to grow up. I remember when he used to pick up girls, take them to his house, fuck them, and then have his assistant throw them out in the morning. What a conceited a-hole. I hope for his daughter's sake that he has become a real man — that is — responsible.

    82

    Poor showing, Mark. If you have such a full life–and I believe that you do–why find it necessary to rain on his parade? Particularly because, as one earlier writer pointed out, Donnie helped give you your start precisely because he was a part of NKOTB. Not classy to rain on his parade…. sounds a lot like sour grapes, and you have plenty going on, so no need for that. Plenty of room in the starosphere for two Wahlbergs.

    86

    I don't see anything besides Marky Mark admitting he was a huge a-hole as a youngster and not wanting to go back to those days. Sure, it might've opened doors for his success today, but I don't think anyone who's managed to establish themselves as legit would want to go back to their trou-dropping, paparazzi-punching days. He knows where his bread is buttered, and that was never with the Funky Bunch. Good for him for realizing that and deciding to stay a grown-up.
